Williamson had three lives including a howler of a dropped catch by Joe Denly
England's Joe Denly put up a late contender for worst dropped catch of the year on the fifth day of the second Test against New Zealand in Hamilton.
The 33-year-old botched a straight forward catch when Black Caps captain Kane Williamson played a shot directly towards him the lunch interval.
Williamson was outfoxed by a change in delivery from paceman Jofra Archer but Denly was unable to complete the simple catch.

The hosts secured a one-nil victory after rain washed out most of the final day's play in Hamilton.
The second Test ended in a draw after Williamson (104) and Ross Taylor (105) thwarted England's attack with an unbroken 213-run partnership to help their side seal a fifth successive series win at home.
New Zealand won the first game at Bay Oval in Mt. Maunganui by an innings and 65 runs.
Root enjoyed a return to form with his player of the match 226 at the end a poor year when the skipper averaged below 30.
New Zealand, meanwhile, head to Australia on Saturday for a three-Test series with the 1-0 win over England cementing their number two world ranking behind India.
